Skulduggery Pleasant: Death's Dawn

"I grabbed the axe off of one of them, snapping it with a sharp crack, twisting around and driving it into the skull of another. These guys were easy to kill, but we were being overwhelmed. I was almost at Tihana's side again, when I felt the rock hit my head.

"Oh bollocks." Blood trickled down the side of my face, and then I passed out."

Swordlord - Tyrian

"You need to explain. Now." Skulduggery looked at both of us, and I imagined that if he had a face, his expression would be one of deadly calm.

"Where to start?" I mused, "From the start of my life, from the start of the first of my bloodline, from the start of Tihana's life?"

"We'll start with you, I think." I swallowed, and began to speak.

"I was born, as you may of worked out, sixteen years a go-" Tihana interrupted me.

"You don't say!" She began to clap sarcastically.

I sent her a withering look. "My job to be cynical, not yours. Anyway, my mother had also been. . . guarded, for want of a better word, by Tihana. Our link with the werewolf's has been strong for centuries, but it was starting to fray. The death of all the werewolves, all but one, was damaging for us, and even more so for the werewolf clans."

"It was a time of blood, fire, disease." Tihana interrupted. "We are so deeply written into history that our loss affected everyone. When my Alpha, or leader as you would say, died, everything changed. I am the final werewolf, and for that, I am the most powerful. It was our duty since anyone could remember to guard Tyrian's family. A small number have tried to find out why, but it has yet to be discovered. Now, Mr. Pleasant, we would appreciate you to tell us what your, idea, is."

"Well, firstly, I want to send both of you to England. I want you to say that our Sanctuary does not need your help, especially from a werewolf and it's master." Tihana clenched her fists, and a low growl echoed in her throat. "You can tell them that we can manage perfectly fine, no matter what threat is coming towards us."

I stood up. "You're not sending both of us, if any. You don't understand how much we need to help you, how much you need our help. Ireland, and with it, the whole world, is in danger, from something. Even we don't know what it is, but we need to deal with it united. Their plan is for us to fight amongst ourselves. You claim you despise evil. Then why do you fall to their plans?"
